Mediterranean Tomato Tart for #SundaySupper

Mediterranean Tomato Tart | Magnolia Days

A bud pops open and bright red petals spread to greet the sun. It is the first glimmer of beauty to come with spring. Gazing at the camellia brings thoughts of red fruits and vegetables to come. It will soon be time for cherries, watermelon, rhubarb, peppers, and glorious tomatoes. If only the season would get here quickly. Until then you have to make the best of what you find in at the store. One way to do that with tomatoes is to cook them. Find the best you can at the market and make a Mediterranean Tomato Tart.

Making the tart is similar making a pizza. There is the crust which is pie dough. You can either make one from scratch or use a refrigerated store-bought one. Toppings of feta cheese, red onion, olives, and spinach are scattered around. Thick slices of tomatoes are arranged on top so they will peak through and show their lovely natural pattern and color. The “sauce” is eggs and milk whisked together with fresh thyme and poured in to fill every nook and cranny. It is then very carefully transferred to the oven to bake. A little while later you have a beautiful tart that tastes as good as it looks.

Mediterranean Tomato Tart is a meatless meal. Serve it with a simple green salad. Eggs and cheese provide protein and make this dish both filling and satisfying. Each bite can have different taste combinations of saltiness from cheese and olives, sweetness of onion, freshness of spinach, and brightness of tomato. The best bite is one that has them all.

Tarts are easier than you may think. It's the same as a pie only in a different pan.
